This does happen occasionally to me, like if I let my arm dangle without moving it for a while, I can see it pooling- but I think our arms are almost constantly moving so it's harder to notice, and not as severe as the leg pooling.

Hey,

Way back in 1995 befire I got diagnosed a doctor at the University of Miami gave me a tilt table test and the techs noticed my hands and feet then, also the tachycardia. That doctor left the school and I did not get diagnosed with POTS until 2 years later. Sorry little vent there :rolleyes: but yeah my hands get the purple look too.

I never had blood pooling in my hands until about 2 months ago. I was standing up and talking to someone and looked down and my hands and nails were purple! Scared me at first then I realized that it must just be ANOTHER symptom. I have noticed it about a dozen times since then. My feet only swell up and turn reddish purple when I take a hot shower.

My blood pools in my hands while walking, especially when it's hot outside. And that makes it impossible to do any fine-motor activities for about an hour after returning home from a walk.

But lately, I've been having more and more stiffness and a "thickness" feeling in my fingers when I wake up in the mornings - not exactly pooling, but a similar result. This is especially distressing to me, as I am a professional pianist!
